My friend's birthday is coming up, and I want to get her a really great massage. Can any of you recommend a good masseur, masseuse, or spa? And do you know if they do gift-certificate-type things? Her schedule is hectic, but I want to actually present her something, instead of saying 'here's some money, go pamper yourself.'
How much should I expect to be paying for a hotel room for a weekend in PDX?
I plan on making my first visit in October or early November, possibly with my girlfriend and I was curious as to how much a room would be. Here, an "all right" room is $60-80 a night.
Secondly. In the event that I come by myself, if possible I would like to not have to shell out dough for a hotel. I know it's weird but if anyone (preferably bike commuter type) wouldn't mind giving me a floor to sleep on and a bike to ride or something, that'd be rad. IM me for some information on me. Honestly, I am not expecting anyone to ever agree to that but I figured I would give it a shot.
I'm done wasting your time.
Haha, my IM is: mutants at war
Why the hell isn't rize playing anywhere in portland?
Anyoen work in an independant theatre that has it coming soon?
I promised to take a friend, as soon as it came out in town.
Can you recommend a place I can get a quality wedding dress alteration done? I'm willing to pay for the quality as much as necessary. Hopefully someplace downtown or at least easily accessible via public transit. Thank you muchly :)

i´ve always wanted to learn to cook ethiopian cuisine, especially vegetarian fare, but so far have not had much luck on my own. i consider myself a seasoned cook, and frequently cook for a group of 30 in a primarily vegan/vegetarian househould. i like to give myself new culinary challenges from time to time. i have an ethiopian cookbook, and have read some on the internet, but all of my attempts seem to fall far short of what i can get in restuarants. my few attempts at injera have been completely disasterous.
i´m a student, so i don´t have a lot of money, but i could offer a little compensation, or pay for the ingredients. i´m also pretty talented when it comes to computers, so perhaps something could be worked out there. i´m a student at the UO and am taking some classes this summer, but like to come to portland over weekends, and will probably have a lot of free time later in the summer.
anyone out there have some time and want to show me a few tricks? anyone know of anyone to ask?
Does anyone know if RENT is coming back to town anytime soon?
I need to go eyeglass shopping.
Anyone know of some good places with good design selection?
Heard of a place that's supposed to be behind Good Sam's, but don't know exactly where.
I'm a big lay-away fan and a huge snob about what goes on my face.....but so far everything I've liked is $400+, and that's just crazy.
I'm thinking of taking some classes through the Northwest Film Center and I have a few questions...
Have you taken classes through the Northwest Film Center? What were the classes like? Did you enjoy it? Hate it?
Or are you going to be enrolling in classes? How did you decide to enroll? What are your expectations?
Thanks in advance!
This may seem similar to the wedding dress question someone asked earlier, but I don't need any difficult alterations; I just need a lining sewn into my fairly translucent wedding gown.
Any recommendations for where I can get this done quickly (within about 3 weeks) for a reasonable price?
Thank you tons!
Does anyone know of a good yarn store in portland oregon (or its surrounding area, Vancouver/beaverton/or hillsboro)?
I'll be visiting in a few weeks and am so excited to be home:)
x-posted to a few
i didn't get to go last year. today is my b-day and all i want to do is go to Todai and get my free meal but someone else has to go and pay for their food.
Does anyone have a local podiatrist that they love and recommend?
NW/downtown is preferred, but not 100% necessary.
someone post something interesting
I'm trying to avoid 9 more chapters of reading....
grad school is driving me INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!
*tears out eyeballs*
I need to get ahold of some Nutria meat. Preferably, prepared (i.e. skinned, etc., frozen or dehydrated or otherwise ready to cook/eat)
I know people hunt them around here. Does anyone know a hunter who could hunt me down some nutria, kill it and clean it for me? I'm not sure what a fair price would be, but we could work something out.
I've called exotic meat places but they don't have it. We used to be able to order it in Jerky and Snack Stix form from Louisiana but they don't sell it any longer. :(
I'm in a terrible amount of pain right now (as mentioned in my previous post about my wisdom teeth). My dentist's office, bless their hearts, brushed me off again when I requested a pain medication refill. Hopefully they'll get to it tomorrow, but meanwhile, even 4 ibuprofren and 2 tylenol only keep the pain at bay for about an hour or so.
Besides banging my head on a wall, any other suggestions to get through this pain for the evening? I'm even considering going to the ER though I doubt they could really help me. Hopefully all I need is to get through the night.
So what do you suggest?
Does anybody know if you are supposed to dress professionally for Jury duty? Or can I just wear Jeans and a tee shirt?
has anyone ever heard of such a thing as a community compost? preferably in northwest portland?
i'm getting tired of throwing food leftovers away,
but i live in an apartment and i'm pretty sure the management wouldn't appreciate me making a little compost pile in the landscaping out front.
Does anyone know of a good book for identifying flowers (particularly, but not limited to, Oregon wildflowers)?
I have this friend who needs to get laid.
Crazy guy, hillbillie punk, snowboarder, fish LOVER.
Wants to tap the ass of a fine, redheaded goth chick while his ol lady is out of town.
Who want's to assist?
Edit: You don't have to be a redhead, that was more of a guideline than a rule. Same with the goth thing... Guideline.. Punkers and skaters and other subversives good too.
Pictures will be added by the end of the day.
Ok, I have a strange request.
Does anyone have a GED from Clark College? If so, what does it look like? I have a friend who is trying to decide whether they've just been shown a production or an authentic. Anyone? Maybe a scan with your name blacked out or something?
Want more than just a room, want to be part of a household?
$275 a month plus utilities gets you a good-size room in a very nice house. Right on bus lines, walking distance to shopping and fun stuff, warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and full of interesting people. We've got our own laundry facilities, two full baths, extra storage space, and a nice yard. Also comes with four open-minded, friendly roommates ranging from 18 to 28. Think you'd like being part of Chez Geek? Let us know why.
In search of a good tailor, specifically for womens suit pants.....I'm a bit on the short side, and quite unlike the amazon proportions that designers seem to target. I would hem them myself, but they cost more than I am willing to risk with my just above rudimentry sewing skills.
Any recommendations? East side would be awesome, but I'll drive to North side if they are open on weekends.
Ok... sorry. 2nd question....
Jury Duty- should I bring a lunch? Or do they give you a lunch break long enough to grab something nearby?
